Davos, Diabolos and the Decider-Leader Principle

January 23, 2018

The present world economic order is nothing new. It originated even earlier than 1919, when US plutocracy, having steered and profiteered from the First World War that it helped incite, suggest, and organize, just so… took command of the world… And didn’t release it ever since (its next tool, Nazism, and various European fascisms it carefully helped nurture, made the situation even worse).

The present economic system originated then, by 1919. An economy is a philosophy. A philosophy has metaprinciples. The economic metaprinciple imposed by the USA at the Versailles conference in 1919 was that greed is good, so greed should rule, that’s how the West was won, & greed rules when the wealthiest people lead, decide, steer the world, and help it think and feel. This idea became central to Nazism as the “Führerprinzip”.

Führerprinzip: in English, the leader principle, a principle thoroughly embraced by that well-known,and all too admired child, Obama (who took himself for a great leader, or so he said, although he objectively left the US healthcare system in the most disastrous state in a century, as life expectancy is down three years in a row). When children lead a very mature biosphere, what happens?

At Davos, the self-declared “leaders” accumulate, in an orgasm of mutually self-congratulatory greedy madness. Yes, some of them were elected. But no, they should not have the right to decide for all of us, nor the right to decide, just a few thousands of them, the fate of a four billion years old biosphere. A fortiori without proper debate. The failure of present day economics is not just a political failure, it’s all the way to a philosophical failure, the most major philosophical failure, ever. (The latter point is little noticed… although it’s crucial.)

In the case of the USA, the initial leaders were in the ilk of George Washington in 1776 CE, a slave owner with 250 slaves, or so, who was also a top commander (in the British army, initially), when he was not a real estate investor (on land stolen from french and Indian alike). And then of course Jefferson, another slave owner who, in a frenzy of greed, conquered a gigantic part of North America (a part Britain was keen to leave to the American Natives, thus the US war of independence!)

What’s the big deal with the Davos Obscenity? The world’s “deciders” are breathing together, in other words, they are con-spiring together, for all to see (con, with; spirare, respire). 70 heads of states and governments. 2,500 guests, including the Indian PM, Donald Trump, watched over by 5,000 Swiss military.  In a token gesture to denigrating, subjugating, exploiting, harassing and demeaning women,  seven women are co-chairing the forum (Hey. guys, should you happen to be sincere, change the laws, not the faces!).

Brexit of the UK, the United Kingdom, was a plutocratic propaganda plot, a conspiracy to foil EU attempts to moderate plutocracy. In Brussels, more than 30,000 paid and registered lobbyists influence the so-called “deciders”, and great “leaders” who are later rewarded with jobs, careers, consultancies and various riches and power. See ex-PM Blair’s career, post PM, for an inkling… This is not just disgusting, it’s criminal. And the fate of the biosphere is one of the victims, besides all the rest of humanity. When civilizations starts to misfire, billions may die, and that will be entirely the fault of this satanic system of governance which is presently in place.

Kate Blanchet, a movies star who is ambassador of the UN HCR is also there. She said: ”I teach compassion to my children but all around proves them the opposite.”

Half of the world’s population received no share of all wealth created globally last year, while 82 percent went to the richest one percent, a report by Oxfam International revealed. Eight men (including pseudo-ecologists Gates of hell, and Bloom-berg) have as much wealth as 3.6 BILLION people (half of humanity): don’t they represent a toxic environment, all by themselves? Just a question, ladies, gentlemen, and critters!

Billionaires in 2017 increased their wealth by $762 billion, enough to end “global extreme poverty seven times over“, the United Kingdom headquartered charity’s annual inequality report, said. Winnie Byanyima, the organisation’s executive director, called the billionaire boom a “symptom of a failing economic system“. “The people who make our clothes, assemble our phones and grow our food are being exploited to ensure a steady supply of cheap goods, and swell the profits of corporations and billionaire investors,” she said on January 19, 2018.

Plutocrats are very crafty. That’s how they became so mighty: using all tricks imaginable, no holds barred. The New York Times gave the example of Mr. Steyer, a guy who started at the usual places: Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, etc, managing a hedge fund for “high worth individuals”. Steyer wants to impeach Trump, because Trump is “unfit for office”, whereas, of course, Steyer is fit for office. The arrogance of it all makes even the self-described “Democrats” nervous: “A Billionaire Keeps Pushing to Impeach Trump. Democrats Are Rattled.” (Lest the association of their party with that of Pluto becomes too obvious?)

I would suggest that billionaire financial plutocrat Steyer is all about brandishing red-herrings, and calling them the problem. Why? To distract the masses from real reform, the sort that would expose the likes of him for what they are. Indeed, a multi-billionaire hedge fund manager more democrat than the democrats? Why doesn’t Steyer propose a campaign for very high taxes on financial vultures instead? Because to talk about one particular person prevents to talk about inequality? That inequality which gives him so much power that he can run against elected officials, employing hundreds, to do so, because of all this money he got during Quantitative Easing, or from financing coal companies? And now of course he is more white than white… (Claiming, of course, to be an ecologist…)

Last year saw the biggest increase in billionaires in recorded history, with one minted every two days, according to the report, entitled ‘Reward work, not wealth‘.

There are now 2,043 billionaires worldwide – 90 percent of which are men – the report, based on data from Credit Suisse’s Global Wealth Databook for 2017, said. Oxfam found that: “Tax evasion, erosion of workers’ rights and automation are responsible for the world’s economic inequality.  The organisation has called for greater redistribution of wealth through the use of taxation and public spending programmes by governments worldwide, the elimination of the gender pay gap and a focus on ‘living wages‘ rather than minimum wages.

Sixty guys hold more than half of the world’s wealth. Those vultures, and their obsequious servants, hold the world’s public opinion in their talons. And what of the public? We The People?

The public think as they’re programmed. The public feels, as programmed. Citizens do, as they’re programmed. They even whine, just a bit, as they’re programmed, & march, as programmed. They critique & know, just a little, no more than they were programmed to. What could go wrong? For the owners of it all?

To wit: In the USA, “democrats” revere Bill Clinton a governor cum de facto rapist who made it to the presidency, thanks for helping Reagan in “Iran Contra”, and whose greatest claim to fame, aside from being the only president who was impeached, was to have abrogated President Roosevelt’ Banking Act of 1933 (“Glass-Steagall”).  

Yes, guys, it’s not all about the Russians loving Putin. Right, Putin is a murderer, but Obama’s policy of “signature strikes” (on… weddings, several times… in countries the US was not at war with), was not any better, for all to see.

As long as We The People will agree with the decider-leader principle, there is no hope. But it’s time to find some hope. Hopefully before the ocean start lapping up all shores… And the floods, and the drought, and the world food supply system stats to falter.

Polls show that around half of the French population never heard of the “Paradise Papers”, papers from a law firm which revealed some of the world’s leaders’ incredible corruption.

As CBS abstracted it: “American individuals and corporations represent the largest share of addresses in Appleby’s records, according to the ICIJ. Its clients also come from the U.K., China and Canada.

The leaks link Ross to a shipping company called Navigator Holdings, which has ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle. According to the ICIJ, Ross’ private equity firm was one of Appleby’s biggest clients.

While Ross diverted most of his holdings when he took his post as commerce secretary in the Trump administration, he maintained a stake in Navigator through two chains of Cayman Islands companies, the group said, citing Appleby files and public records.

Navigator’s biggest clients include Russian energy company Sibur…”

The present system goes on, because “We The People” has not realized that most evil in the Twentieth Century originated from that precise economic system. Notice that I don’t accuse “capital” and “capitalism”. Those two terms means nothing: civilization rests on capital. Civilization without capital is a contradiction. What civilization can do without, and has to do without, is inequality.

And inequality is not just inequality of riches. Or wealth. It is inequality of power, and that means, inequality of decision-making. A few idiotically self-aggrandizing Davos cretins shouldn’t decide for us all. Us all should decide for us all. By debating. Intelligently, as billions of us can do much better.

The Plutocratic Chain Reaction, Civilization Killer, Biosphere Terminator, Neurobiological Disaster

January 19, 2018

Plutocracy is the most important disease of economics, sociology, civilization. Even worse: it interferes with neurobiology as a pathogene! It’s not intrinsic to humanity, but intrinsic to the combination of humanity’s intrinsic Dark Side, with civilization itself.

Our world is dying from plutocracy (although the patient is still talking and walking around, it is devoured from inside, its mind has become cancerous; look at the forests, not just the oceans, which are dying). Even without considering the potential of nuclear war…

Around 26 centuries ago, Pluto became the new name for Hades, God of the underworld, the world where the dead roamed. It was a Public Relation operation: the reputation of Hades was so terrible, nobody wanted to utter his name anymore. So a new name surfaced for Hades: Pluto. Pluto was then the god of hell, riches (precious minerals and stones are underground). Pluto could make itself invisible (thus the notion of lying, dissemblances and conspiracy are intrinsic to Pluto). After Hades promotion to the more general notion of Pluto, the latter meaning merged further with “daemon”, diablo, devil (from the Greek diaballein, to throw across), and, of course, Satan (from the Hebrew root “stn“, an adversary, often sent by God to bother humans, a meaning rather conserved in the Qur’an, intriguingly, yet coherently enough). PLUTOCRACY ARISES FROM SIMPLE MATHEMATICS:

Plutocracy is fundamentally just the fruit of a mathematical theorem: the quotient of two exponentials is itself an exponential. That’s how I explained (most of) the attenuation of Neanderthal genetic alleles, and also mass extinctions such as the disappearance of dinosaurs and their ilk. Indeed, the fastest growing wealth, or power (in the Pluto case) will overwhelm any other. So the apparition of monopolies of power is simple math.

Yes, the mathematics, and the root causes are the same as for the disappearance of Neanderthals, dinosaurs, etc:

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2013/03/14/why-did-neanderthals-disappear/

But this time, the disappearance at hand is that of humanity and the entire biosphere!

Plutocracy didn’t invent the Dark Side of humanity. Right. However, it leverages it, using civilization itself. (This argument is used in Star Wars, implicitly: the immense power of the Jedis furthers leverages the Dark Side; this is what Luke Skywalker discovered to his dismay, in his older years! That’s the main theme of the 2017 movies, “The Last Jedi“). That doesn’t mean we have to throw civilization through the window (as various fascist systems proposed in the Twentieth Century; and many political and religious movements, including Chrsitianism, had effected prior: consider Saint Augustine’s tale of “Two Cities”, where the one on Earth, Rome, the Roman empire, had to cease to be, so the one is Heavens could rise…)

Modern sophisticates with a perverse, underhanded and conspiratorial agenda reduced the meaning of “Pluto” to “riches”. Thus, according to these hypocrites, according to those under-criticizing critters, “plutocracy” is just, solamente, the rule of wealth. However, this is in contradiction with multi-millennial wisdom. Old wisdom equated wealth and the commission of the worst sins. Time for civilization to re-read the classics!

The reduced interpretation of “plutocracy”, as just the rule of wealth is so primitive, unsophisticated and reductive that it misses a wisdom which is at the root of Bible. The Old Testament condemns those who gave themselves to the cult of the “Golden Calf”. The New Testament makes things even clearer by saying the rich man has as much chance to finish in heavens as a camel has to go through the eye of a needle. The Qur’an, while not as extreme on that point (how could it, with those wealthy Arabs owning all these slave girls?), mandates to give to charity (otherwise one is no Muslim).

Thus the rule of wealth is NOT the rule of what “Pluto” is, in full. It is just a small portion of it, the most visible, less significant part. It’s like the magnificent coat of a super venomous snake; what counts is the venom, not the shiny iridescent scales. In full Pluto is not just about riches, but also about hell, death, invisibility (thus fake news, lies and dissemblance). Plutocracy itself, Pluto + Kratos, is power (kratos), the power of Hell (Pluto).

Plutocracy is the rule of the few: few are wealthy enough, or evil enough to exert the rule of hell.

The exponential function tends to make civilizations unstable: the more power, or, what boils down to the same, wealth, a few individuals have, the more they tend to have.

Civilization is all about power: it provides enormous power to the collective, redistributes some to the individuals composing it.

Civilization provides the power to exponentiate small differences of status and riches into enormous differences. The end result is that some individuals have all the power, and others, the rest of humanity, nothing.

Now this is fundamentally inhuman. It is even worse than that. It is neurobiologically impossible. Human beings evolved to have (shared) power with other humans around them. A full human environment is an environment which empowers us.

Human brains can’t develop in full, let alone function in full otherwise. Thus the problem of having all the power only for a few is not just a moral problem, but a neurobiological one.

Indeed by making the environment serves them best, & them alone, satanically depriving others, to satisfy that glee on which they greedily suck, the hyper wealthy, the plutocrats, remove much of the environment that the rest of humanity needs to fully develop their brains, thus damaging the overall brainpower humanity can bring to bear. 

In the end, humanity’s decision making involves then only a few brains. The result is here for all to contemplate: even the Trump administration said that the rise of global temperature by 2100 could be as much as 4.8 degree Celsius. For comparison the coldest it got in the last three million years, the global temperature was only 3 degree Celsius lower than now (that was 20,000 years ago). The warmest it got was no more than more than roughly a degree Celsius higher than now (and sea level was nine meters higher; during the Eemian, 125,000 years ago).

In other words, Trump himself says we are on track for an unimaginable disaster, in the matter of climate (so why is he screaming about the Paris Accord? Trump really doesn’t want the USA to pay for the $120 billion fund to finance developing countries). It’s not Trump’s original sin, but the fault of the FASCIST principle which says only a few individuals or organizations, can, and are, habilitated to decide for all of humanity: that’s what really ruins us. The climate catastrophe was fully in evidence in 1990. But then plutocrats mobilized all the political activities so that they would serve themselves (examples: The capture of world governments by Murdoch, Goldman Sachs and its ilk, the abrogation under Clinton of the FDR laws against financial plutocracy, namely the Banking Act of 1933, Brexit, Obamacare, tax havens all over, etc.). Plutocrats are obsessed by themselves, that’s how they got where they are, and will use whatever to stay there. In their metaphysics heavens is hell, and hell, heavens.

And yet, fundamentally, plutocracy is all just mathematics gone metastatic, in civilizations which can’t compute.

How Did Plutocracy Create The Refugee Problem?

December 20, 2017

There is a massive refugee problem, and Europe is the paradise that is supposed to solve it. However, Europe is also a paradise of a different type, that of the Paradise Papers. Both notions are related. The present refugee crisis is different from, say, immigration to the US or Australia in the past. Or even whatever was seen at the height of colonialism’s most horrible horrors. Now, refugees trying to reach Europe are ready to risk life, limb, and even their own children (sometimes they even send the children ahead, as if it were the only way to save them, although they know all too well all the abuse and mayhem laying in wait). On the face of it, the despair of refugees was not as great, even when they were fleeing the Nazis, at the onset of World War Two, when the Nazis were warming up to their ever greater horrors.

In short, the answer is obvious: all what is happening now, even the evolution of science and education, is a province of plutocracy. Through their enormous influence on so-called (“elected“) “representatives”  worldwide, plutocrats, including not just Trump, but Putin and Xi, have made the planet into their masterwork. As I explained for many years, the root of the problem is more than multigenerational, it dates from the evolution of human nature. But the growth of the power of civilization has turned something that just collapsed civilizations into something that is destroying the biosphere itself, even before civilization has been established on any other planet.

Meanwhile, the left, misled even by Marx (who didn’t see the most extreme danger posed by the banking system), has been barking up the wrong trees: “capitalism”, colonialism, nationalism, even racism, didn’t constitute the worst of one is confronting there, the Dark Side of man, that obscurantism leveraged by the power of civilization.

Fighting sexism, radically, would be a better start than all the preceding isms, on the way to fighting obscurantism (a work I will use as a rough equivalent of the “Dark Side” from now on, as one does not go without the other).

Through The Alps Darkly:.

The scene is eerie: in the middle of the snowy night, white French local guides meet African refugees in a forest. Everybody is bundled in ten inch thick winter clothing and headlamps. The French talk to the Africans, in French, telling them they shouldn’t be afraid, they are not gendarmerie. Gendarmes would bring back the migrants to Italy (under a hare-brained EU law). The Africans speak perfect French. “Humanitarian” organizations in Italy have provided them with mountain gear.

After hours of efforts braving extreme cold, deep snow, cliffs and avalanches across a pass which is closed in winter, the Africans are understandably not keen to be driven back to balmy Italy. Some get killed during the traverse, falling off cliffs. The French gendarmerie then has to take enormous risks to extract them from precarious perches in which they have crashed.

In summer, the Névache valley is a paradise. Still migrants fall off cliffs in the middle of the night, as they try to avoid military patrols. In that alpine valley next to where I often reside, in the first ten months of 2017, 1,600 illegal immigrants went through, and were intercepted, and thus registered by authorities (most were not). Most of them were not. Out of the 1,600 who got official help, 900 were children. The Alps are dangerous. In winter, even through the Col de Léchelle pass, temperatures regularly dip to minus twenty (Fahrenheit or Centigrade). Snow is meters deep. Wolves, although illegally shot at by French authorities, roam. Migrants fall off cliffs, others freeze. 

Lower two-thirds of the wild and splendid Névache Valley. Migrants come from the right, and go the left. Most of the death and mayhem happen just in the forested pass lurking on the right.  The valley, by then endowed with roads and trains,  extends downstream 300 kilometers to the sea, zigzagging under the different name of “Durance”. Hannibal, escaping a Roman army in hot pursuit, probably used it, taking the Montgenevre pass just to the left, into Italy, and suffering his heavy losses from the local Allobroges (not the Romans). I have run and climbed all over the place, including the big (still) glaciated mountains in the distance.

The Italians are so happy to say goodbye to those French speakers from Africa, they give them free train tickets to travel along the Italian boot to next to the mountainous French border, well guarded by the Alps and the gendarmerie (Italy is, rightly, furious to see an enormous flow of refugees from Africa, and the rest of Europe doing nothing about it… although France makes war there, in half a dozen countries, enough to prevent a general takeover by Salafist madmen, and in spite of a lack of financial support from the rest of the EU).

I have a vested interest in the subject, having been brought up in Africa, and believing that French-speaking people living in Africa (my category in childhood) have a right to go to France, if and when they can make a living there.

Now, of course, cynics come and point out that there are not enough jobs in Europe. Curiously, though, they are, or used to be, lots of jobs in countries with high immigration, such as Great Britain post-Thatcher, or the USA under Obama-Trump… Or for that matter, in the France of the “Trente Glorieuses” (the 30 years of French economic ascent, reconstructing the country after 1945). On the face of it, there is high immigration to places with a future, and that means places with jobs.

So one needs to step back. Consider for example the San Francisco Bay Area. It used to have government built low-income housing. That was before Clinton style “Democrats” Post World War Two,  took power, and decided that anything short of the elite was just to be amused with fables. By contrast, the US government, under Democrat Truman and Republican Eisenhower, engaged in what would now be viewed as “Marxist” policies, far to the left of the worst proposed by Bernie Sanders.

Why Were There Quality Jobs In The Thirty Glorious Years, And Not Now? Guns!

Answer, short version: because power is at the point of the gun, said Mao, In 1945, twenty million angry young men, trained to kill, infused with spirits of democracy, civilization, wanted nice jobs, so got them.

In one place local authorities tried to stop demobilized soldiers with legitimate grievances: Algeria, on May 8, 1945. Bad idea. Result: a blood bath, and then decades of uncivil war (and an ongoing dictatorship).

The correct answer was not to do what happened more or less accidentally in Algeria, but for the authorities to bend over backwards. Nobody could stop the potentially angry young men: they were the army.

The GI Bill made even higher education free for those trained killers brainwashed into the ideal of defending democracy. In the USA alone, it meant more than ten million GIs, who needed jobs, and were well versed in the art of killing those animated by Satan-Pluto). Millions of GIs took advantage. Others went into extremely well paid industrial jobs: they could afford a good house, a good car, a good homemaker wife, and good children receiving a good education.

Republican president Eisenhower rose the upper margin rate to 93% in 1953. Yes ninety-three percent. Meanwhile he ordered the construction of a PUBLIC (no tolls!) freeway system (the famous “interstates”). Now, even in California (under “Democratic” control for decades), tolls are introduced (and fees are so massive in California “public” higher education that they can compare to average family income).

The Republican platform of 1956 would be condemned by today’s so-called “Democrats” as “Marxist“. Well, it worked for all. Thus not for plutocrats.

Here is the core of the 1956 Republican Platform:

* Assistance to low-income communities

* Protect Social Security

* Provide asylum for refugees

* Extend Minimum wage

* Improve unemployment benefits to cover more people

* Strengthen labor laws so workers can join unions

* Equal pay regardless of sex

During the “30 glorious ones”, high density housing was built for the lower classes. Throughout the “West”. Come the eighties and nineties, after a decade or two to wilful neglect, it was demolished for being “ugly”… From Paris to San Francisco.

Fast forward indeed to the 1980s: B actor Reagan, one of these ignorant puppets plutocrats love, playing the role of “president”, reduced enormously the taxes on the wealthiest. He paid for this by closing down lunatic asylum. No doubt, as himself a lunatic, he felt that his kind should be able to roam free. Meanwhile, cities such as San Francisco, or the Paris Metropolitan area, decided that low-income housing was an eyesore, and literally demolished with high explosives, said housing, imploding thousands of homes. Why should ugly dwellings mar the views of the truly rich and their servants? Let them live in the street.

In San Francisco, high school teachers may have to live in their cars: they certainly can’t afford rents. The greater Bay Area has eight million inhabitants. Those who want to live in a normal room, have to drive hours a day to their jobs. University professors in the South Bay have been known to live in their cars. But hell, why not? Who would want Kremlin agent, multibillionaire Yuri Milner, to pay his fair share of taxes? Milner is the god of many an intellectual nowadays, as those giving crumbs to them, reach divine status among the pigeons.

The Post Colonialist order of global plutocracy enabled the creation of tax heavens for the wealthiest, all over the world:

The “Paradise Papers” show clearly that laws are devised for the wealthiest to escape taxation. Something totally unsurprising: top politicians, when they graduate, turn into propagandists of the wealthiest, making them appear to be just like the friendly chap next door, although, to the wisest, they should look just like common chimpos pulling tricks.

Even though they are required to pay very little tax to start with, .001% of the richest people avoid at least 30% of the tax they owe. But of course the corruption goes much deeper than that: the entire system, from education to death taxes, is rigged so that the wealthiest get all the power and life support, and the rest barely enough to survive. Banks lend to the wealthiest, the art market is rigged as bitcoin for the wealthiest, when the wealthiest thieves get caught, they negotiate deals, and often just shrug away, suggesting the state may want to change its laws instead: Apple has been doing the latter for decades. Apple, the wealthiest company by market cap, said to the US, the mightiest country: change. And Apple may finally gets its wish, under King Trump I. If the law was hard and nothing but the law, all the C level officers of Apple would have long been under judicial supervision

0.01% of  the world’s population owe more than 50% of the wealth… And 99.99% of the power. Money is just the tip of the lever. Corruption and financial crimes have reached higher levels than ever. Plutocrats don’t want just wealth, they want power, and they want power not just for their own selfish comfort, but because they enjoy hurting others. In the latest, plutocrats plan to assassinate the biosphere (Glencore, mentioned below, became famous as a coal company; now it owns mines in Congo, and even the national parks they sit in; to make sure of that, Glencore employs… judges, no less! Thus, if one comes too close to a Glencore mine in Congo, just looking, even if accompanied by national park officers, one can be arrested… and “judged”, on the spot. Read on for more savory details on Glencore, as revealed by the “Paradise Papers”).

146 countries of which 100 are doing an automatic exchange of banking data. But, once again, the poor put their money in banks, the rich, in art.

Paradoxically, the OECD has progressed more in taxing wealth than the European Union. That’s an indicator of the fact that the 20,000 lobbyists active around the European Parliament work hard. So do the 6,000 lobbyists helping to draw the Trump tax reform.

***

The “Colonial” rule was not just “colonial”, most often it came with an administration implementing the rule of law; bad for red-blooded plutocrats:

So empires were not just “colonial”. They were colonial, plus administrative. Sometimes 100% colonial and 0% administrative, as in English colonial America (colons did whatever they wanted). Sometimes 99.99% administrative, and .01% colonial (as in Senegal, the case I am intimately familiar with). When the administrative policy was to implement holocaust, or genocide, mass atrocities resulted, as intended (consider Australia and Canada, even in the 1960s, when they forcefully separated some Native populations from their children). There were no limits to how nasty European colonialists could be: contemplate New England cities paying for scalps of Natives. Or the US government doing all it could to exterminate the Indians, in the Nineteenth with bullets and the Twentieth centuries, with alcohol, while claiming it didn’t. Or think Congo, with the pluto in chief, king of the Belgians, on a rampage.

However, in many places, and more in modern times, the “colonial” administration came to prevent the worst abuses (especially against the ecology). Yes, matters were far from good in many places (for example in Algeria, all too few people of Muslim descent had access to full citizen rights, let alone high education). However in many other places, especially in Black Africa, the “colonial” system worked better for the Natives than any alternative. One real reason that France ditched her African colonies in a hurry was that having a functional French hospital every 100 kilometers, for the benefit of the Natives cost way too much money. So a withdrawal supposedly for humanitarian reasons was anything but. However the leftists saw nothing of the sort. All the “Doctors Without Borders” of the present age don’t replace a state of the art hospital every 100 kilometers. Same for schools every ten kilometers. Now African “leaders” are in charge of this, as French president Macron reminded us… But they don’t have the means. Only plutocrats have the means, and they have them because they are stealing the people blind, including the people of Africa.

But the main underlying reason for frantic decolonization of territories apparently incapable of administering themselves was to prevent the increasingly civilized administration of vast territories. Instead what US plutocrats implemented, under the guise of decolonization, was to have developing countries become a free-for all. A free for all plutocrats. (The same method was implemented in Russia itself, in the 1990s, under the cover of Harvard and its ilk; Putin was both reaction and compromise, yet still somewhat part of the worldwide Pluto system.)

Catch Your Fishes If You Can:   

An example has been the devastation of fisheries in West Africa. This is an old problem: the CIA was completely aware of it as early as 1986. Yet later, the son of the then “socialist” president of Senegal, a rather small country, and one of the poorest, became a billionaire… probably by selling personal authorizations to fish completely illegally to corporations from rich countries such as Korea (the son went to jail later, but refused to regurgitate much, or most, of the money; the 90-year-old father is toying with the idea of a return to politics, no less). 

As the Guardian put it in : “Tackling illegal fishing in western Africa could create 300,000 jobs: If governments in western Africa could end illegal fishing by foreign commercial vessels and build up national fleets and processing industries, they could generate billions of dollars in extra wealth and create around 300,000 jobs, according to a new report (pdf).

The devastating, social, economic and human consequences of overfishing in western Africa’s coastal waters have been well documented but the report, Western Africa’s Missing Fish, by the Overseas Development Institute and Spanish investigative journalists porCausa, lays bare the extent of lost opportunities across countries including Senegal, Mauritania, Liberia, Ghana and Sierra Leone.

“The scale of the losses is enormous. Instead of jobs and development, the livelihoods of artisanal fishers are being decimated by foreign fishing fleets, which operate virtually unchecked,” says Alfonso Daniels, lead author of the report, which presents new evidence of the extent and pattern of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU) in the region – a global “epicentre” of overfishing.

For the first time, researchers used detailed satellite and tracking data to analyse the two main practices of IUU fishing: the activities of reefers – large-scale commercial vessels that receive and freeze fish at sea – and the transportation of fish in large refrigerated containers that are subject to less strict reporting requirements.

In 2013, they followed reefers off the coast of western Africa and found vessels from China, Holland and South Korea operating there, with fish exported globally. Among the 35 reefers operating in the region that year, routes were consistent with the transfer of catches from fishing vessels to reefers, including inside the exclusive fishing waters of Senegal and Ivory Coast, countries that have banned ship-to-ship transfers of catches.”

The French state, at times, has helped Senegal to police its waters. But if Senegal was a formal part of a formal imperial authority France was leading militarily, this would not happen. Senegal, thanks to the French, is better defended than Sierra Leone, where foreign, illegal trawlers not only fish in the 200 nautical mile EEZ, illegally, but outright penetrate Sierra Leone’s territorial waters. Sierra Leone was given a boat to make patrols, but cannot afford to operate it.

The Guardian, as a thoroughly brainwashed member of the establishment, talks only lost jobs and revenue. But actually, fish is the main source of protein of West Africa, and its disappearance brings malnutrition, and death, to dozens of millions. If, once again, France and Britain were the guardians of the area, this would not happen.

But it does happen. So for millions of young West Africans of the most enterprising type, the best solution is to emigrate to where there jobs, health, and a future.

Better to die than having no hope, say the refugees:

Over the last decade, hundreds of thousands of refugees have probably died, trying to reach Europe. We have 33,000 confirmed names, over the last decade, but that’s just a small fraction of the total.

Surely nobody cares when people die in the middle of the desert

The systemic tragedy, that hundreds of thousands of people risk, every years, life and limb to gain entry into Europe would not have happened in the so-called “colonial era”. This should be meditated upon. What changed? When one makes this sort of remarks, smart asses proud with a pseudo-intellectual sheen roll out the phrase “racist colonialist white supremacist”. Never mind what is really said.

Colonialism better in some ways? I can’t wait for the insults. Insults are all too often hurled to prevent thinking.

Yet the situation is this: Africa used to be livable enough for Africans not to want desperately to leave it.

Some will contest this smartly, by pointing out that it was harder to leave Africa then, that’s why there was no massive immigration. However, I grew up in Africa at the time, and know it was more livable then. I lived among the Natives, and was pretty much one of them, and Africans, from the white north or the black south, and the browns in between, were not looking up to flee Africa for Europe at the time; their lives were balanced, happy, without Islamist madness and plenty enough of interesting things to do, like agriculture, fishing, cooking, talking, dancing. After nominal independence, this colonial order faded progressively away (except in Algeria or Guinea, where brutal dictatorships were imposed, with attendant mass deaths and mass emigration.)

Humanitarianism As A Cover To The Pluto Machine:

“Humanitarians” say we should help, it’s a shame we don’t. They want to save 5,000 here, 10,000 there. But how many want to come? How many hundreds of millions?

The solution is to make Africa livable.

Or Syria, or Iran.

And first, it takes military might.

To tell us we should help, and we don’t do enough is correct. But nothing short of dismantling the Pluto order will do. Humanitarianism, as it is today, mostly give Plutos good conscience, and put them in the front row, saving the climate they assassinate a bit more everyday. It was hilarious to see, at the Paris climate conference, self-declared “philanthropists” all out to help the climate, when they machines are ravaging it. Serious: one owns a gigantic airline (Virgin’s Branson, friend and host of the PC Obamas), another enormous computer machinery using the power of many nuclear power plants (Gates), another is a gigantic financial vulture (Bloomberg), etc….

Meaning claiming we have to do small-scale humanitarianism, is like saying an engine needs oil. Yes, the Pluto machine needs the oil of humanitarianism. To look good, and work good. Yes, it feels good to help. But nothing short of dismantling the Pluto machine will be really effective. Being plutocrats’ lap dogs make us part of a dog and pony show (yes, dogs and cats site are thousands of times more popular than brainy sites, I know all too well…)

What is the main killer in the developing world? Lack of surgery!

Two million surgeons are missing in the “developing” world, for five billion people. Lack of access to basic surgical care is the number one killer in the developing world, above malaria, tuberculosis, etc. Go explain that to Bill Gates. Two millions surgeons missing. Why? Plutocrats don’t like surgeons in particular, and doctors in general (except when they need their services). In the so-called “West”, the shortage in the education of doctors had been colossal, long-lasting, and deliberate. Why? Plutocrats don’t like doctors and surgeons: doctors and surgeons are brainy and they require a lot of education, thus cash, hence taxes. Doctors and surgeons can, would, and did lead revolutions. Revolutions are bad for plutocratic business. So the plutocratic system prefers to steal doctors in the developing world, paid by developing world taxes, are needed. And if developing world people die from lack of surgical care, well, no worries, no problem, plutocrats called “philanthropes” will come visit the dying, a pretext to fly their private airplane companies, and enjoy the seven stars hotels they own, throughout the planet.

Climate? Maybe they can visit Antarctica in the full luxury of a polluting cruise ship. They will make sure to say hi to a few servants, presidents, Prime Minister and princes on the way. While hypocritically, and deliberately confusedly complaining about their colleague, financier,  and uppity servant, Vladimir Putin (and his billionaire henchmen).

Tax the wealthiest! People brandish the “Tobin tax” concept. But there is nothing new about “Tobin tax”. The idea is as old as civilization, economists just use jargon (when I told that to Krugman, he censored me, before recycling the idea for himself later). Instead, plutocrats foster “philanthropy”, the love of man, something only them can foster. But replacing taxes by NGOs is replacing justice and equality by plutocracy and abuse: it can’t work.

French Doctors On Fire, The Latest Trend:

Nothing proves this better than the sad fate of Doctors Without Borders. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). Doctors Without Borders, a Peace Nobel Laureate is a French founded international humanitarian non-governmental organization (NGO) bringing healthcare to war-torn regions and developing countries ravaged by endemic diseases. In 2015, over 30,000 personnel — mostly local doctors, nurses and other medical professionals, logistical experts, water and sanitation engineers and administrators, advised by advanced countries doctors — provided medical aid in over 70 countries.

The success of Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is enormous, so various enemies of peace have learned that, because it is a civilizationalizing force, MSF is the enemy. So what do those followers of the Dark Side do? From Afghanistan, to Syria, to Yemen, MSF is now targeted. Doctors, by the dozens, are shot like dogs,  up to 57 died in one attack. To make sure they can’t help anymore, nurses got their hands chopped off, etc.

History is formal on this: one can’t have justice if one does not have order, and the only ones roaming are the dogs of war.

Plutocrats own Africa, that’s why Africans are fleeing it, thanks PC Baby Boomers:

It is dawning on people that the sort of self-obsession Baby Boomers instituted as ultimate guidance, electing Nixon, and especially Reagan, this haughty Political Correctness of a pseudo-left, pseudo-pro-peace, is nothing but. The world imperial order of plutocracy we got is the fruit of their self-absorption and intellectual laziness.

Bill Clinton, the ultimate selfish baby Boomer posing as an empath, went all the way, even where neither Nixon and Reagan had dared: he reverted, annihilated the financial order that Franklin D Roosevelt had instituted.. And has had to institute. Clinton put financiers back at the helm, so they could take care of selves, & Clintons.

I have been saying this for decades. Now the notion is finally reaching the mainstream. Even Vox is going my way. Consider: “How the baby boomers — not millennials — screwed America. The boomers inherited a rich, dynamic country and have gradually bankrupted it.”

I will deal with that essay in a separate essay of mine, as it says, from another voice, (some of) what I have been saying for years. Actually, those US Baby Boomers screwed the entire planet, and, first of all, Africa. (Other Baby Boomers, say the European ones, are just parrots of the US ones, because the USA is the leading nation of the world, whatever whoever is saying…) Thus, all and any of the so-called solutions they have put forward are to be viewed with suspicion, to say the least: they are meant to grease The Machine of plutocratic exploitation, not replace by something just, equitable and sustainable.

Plutocrats are crafty: they hide in plain sight. Watch the Obamas bonding continually with “Prince Harry”, a corrupt guy who was just born right, and could get away with parties in Las Vegas who would send the Commons to prison. Watch Bernard Henri Levy (BHL), coming out of one of his palaces, this greatly humongously splendid humanitarian, complete with open shirt, Hemingway style. BHL followed some of my ideas (say on Libya; Humanism Is Force, Or Is Not: against ultimate evil, only ultimate force works). However, BHL made a fortune, like quite a few other top French plutocrats, by exploiting Subsaharan Africa, in a way that no competent administration of the region would have allowed.

As it is, Africa is a dream come true for plutocrats: watch Glencore. That Swiss based company basically owns Congo at this point. Glencore produces rare metals and earths crucial for electronics laptops, smartphones) and electric vehicles (it started with coal, but coal is on its way out). Most of the production comes from giant mines in Katanga, next to Kolwezi. Kolwezi became famous for the lightning strike jump of the French Foreign Legion, under fire, to free more than 5,000 hostages. French troops suffered 11 dead, more than 60 europeans were assassinated, and now the region is under the control of Glencore… Thanks to somber cash payments, all the way to Congo’s President Kabila himself… As just revealed by the “Paradise Papers”.

Well, it’s paradise for the owners of the world. And if we go to hell, as the planet burns, they will chuckle, as Nero proverbially did.

Actually, although Nero was one of the worst emperors ever, I shouldn’t commit defamation, just because it sounds good. In truth, Nero was not in Rome when the fire started. Then he helped fight it, and opened the imperial palace to refugees.

Don’t expect as good a behavior from today’s plutocrats. They are much worse. Differently from Nero, they have colonized minds themselves. As events in many different countries showed recently, the Deep State extends all the way to the main companies, and all the way down, not just banks and the Justice systems, but also to Big Law, and even many NGOs.

Orwell imagined what he thought was the worst, and he came short. In his book, “1984”, gloom and doom rules. Instead what rules now is what is perceived as the best of all possible worlds, when, in reality, we are tottering on the brink of extinction, because of our insistence that we leave in a sort of democracy, when never ever before, so much mind control has been exerted by so few.

If you don’t believe me, watch Twitter, a de facto monopoly, set-up, as Google and Facebook, by the state, decide who gets published, and who gets banned. And who put Twitter in place? Not just the plutocratic servants in the White House, but tycoons associated to Putin, such as Yuri Milner.  I have said it for years. And I have disapproved of it for years.

Now, even the New York Times, which seems to have banned me for years as a conspiracy theorist, admits that I was right:

***

THE PARADISE PAPERS: Kremlin Cash Behind Billionaire’s Twitter and Facebook Investments

Leaked files show that a state-controlled bank in Moscow helped to fuel Yuri Milner’s ascent in Silicon Valley, where the Russia investigation has put tech companies under scrutiny.

It’s a bit more than an ascent: Milner actually invested for example 250 million dollars into Twitter, when Twitter was just a start-up (I love my Twitter account, by the way). 250 million dollars of Putin’s money, that is. I have related in the past the many proofs that Putin is not just a plutocrat, it’s one of the West’s plutocrat (those who find this a bit mysterious, should read “1984” again).

“In the fall of 2010, the Russian billionaire investor Yuri Milner took the stage for a Q. and A. at a technology conference in San Francisco. Mr. Milner, whose holdings have included major stakes in Facebook and Twitter, is known for expounding on everything from the future of social media to the frontiers of space travel. But when someone asked a question that had swirled around his Silicon Valley ascent — Who were his investors? — he did not answer, turning repeatedly to the moderator with a look of incomprehension.

Now, leaked documents examined by The New York Times offer a partial answer: Behind Mr. Milner’s investments in Facebook and Twitter were hundreds of millions of dollars from the Kremlin.

Obscured by a maze of offshore shell companies, the Twitter investment was backed by VTB, a Russian state-controlled bank often used for politically strategic deals.”

This is just the surface of the horror. To understand it fully, stand in front of judges. Most of them are also part of “The Machine”. And the worst? Many of them, don’t even know it. Hope? At least one judge, a president of an Appellate Court, had to resign for gender discrimination. He is 80 years old… Another one, a Federal judge named by Reagan 32 years ago, from the supposedly “liberal” 9th circuit, also resigned for the same reason. Meanwhile judges shuffle gender discrimination cases into “arbitration” (secret courts).

They probably appear in front of Yuri Milner, great bishop of worldwide plutocracy. (Don’t worry about Milner being indicted for being an agent of Putin, most of the red-blooded agents of the US judicial system, including judges, dream to be employed in one of Milner’s companies, or one of the companies of Milner’s pals… who are roughly anybody dealing with silicon…)

So let the refugees drown and freeze: they will give our philanthropic plutocrats ruling the planet the occasion to divulge their awesome “humanitarian” streaks. We are all just to stand in awe for the streaks of their bloody footprints. And for those who really want to change the world for the better, the way is obvious: hyper criticism of the entire establishment and Deep State (something giant, which includes the judicial system and Big Law), and especially of the ideas and moods sustaining it. Help the refugees, yes. But better, attack the system.

Europe Is Dead, Long Live Europe! And long live US publicly subsidized Pluto universities, too!

March 29, 2017

45 years ago Britain was a member of what became formally later the “European Union”. However, anti-Europeans in Britain, mostly on the so-called left (“Labor”) screamed that a referendum should have been conducted to see whether the British People really wanted to be part of Europe. The matter should not having been left to Parliament. One of these screamers presently leads the British Labor Party (Corbyn).

So a law was passed by the UK Parliament, saying that a referendum on belonging to Europe would happen, and would have force of law. Once again, 45 years ago. (NOT last year!) The referendum was conducted, and nearly two-third of British People approved that the UK should be in Europe.

In the meantime, Thatcherism happened. PM Thatcher, a strident nationalist, actually passed the Single European Act (SEA). SEA reformed the legislative process all over Europe by introducing the cooperation procedure and by extending the Qualified Majority Voting to new areas. The legislative process was also quickened. The SEA was supposed to create a better Single European market. Meanwhile, Great britain became ever more inequalitarian.

The British Are Most Enraged, Because Their Society Is Most Unequal.

So now here we are, and Great Britain wants out of Europe… But not out of the European Single market. That’s a complete contradiction. Indeed, understand that the obstacles to the single market are not tariffs: the WTO limits those to 3%… The obstacles have to do with laws and regulations, hence the necessity for the SEA. The point is that if one wants a single market, one has to have laws which are in common enough.

British PM May evoked Article 50, setting the exit of Britain from the EU within 2 years.

[In fairness, let’s give PM May a word sideways here. PM May tried to strike a firm but conciliatory tone, in her letter to Donald Tusk, president of the EU, declaring that the Brexit vote

was no rejection of the values we share as fellow Europeans. Nor was it an attempt to do harm to the European Union or any of the remaining member states. On the contrary, the United Kingdom wants the European Union to succeed and prosper. Instead, the referendum was a vote to restore, as we see it, our national self-determination. We are leaving the European Union, but we are not leaving Europe – and we want to remain committed partners and allies to our friends across the continent.“]

With all due respect, that’s just PC hogwash. To start with it hurts. Secondly, there is an amount of 60 billion dollars in committed EU projects that the UK is committed to finance. Secondly, to access the European Single Market, the UK will have to respect EU law, and pay for the EU infrastructure, just as Norway (or Switzerland) do.

So what happened? Plutocracy, that’s what. Plutocracy owns the media, and felt threatened by the EU government. Plutocracy depends upon tax evasion and (“elected”) government manipulation (and the more than 17 “crown dependencies, part of UK which are tax havens).

Plutocracy rules by mental manipulation. Example: look at the Ivy League universities in the USA. They are the elite universities where the children of the elite get together, live together, plot together, and get instructed on how the manipulate the naive rabble they are expected, and expecting to rule and exploit.

The Ivy League comprises eight campuses: Dartmouth, Columbia, Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Brown, Cornell, Penn have a combined 191 billion dollars in endowment. They got 41 billion in 6 years from US, and paid no tax on their profits (which should have been 9,6 billion dollars, too!

(Of course Obama went to Columbia and then Harvard; in Columbia Obama met ZBig, the guy who make Carter to attack formally Afghanistan on July 3, 1979… ZBig saw in Obama the ideal vehicle to pursue the Pluto empire…)

Average parents pay $33,000 a year for private universities , and $9,000 for public universities.  

Is there hope? Some of the buffoons are becoming more aware. Richard Dreyfus was one of the fanatics who voted for Hillary Clinton, campaigned against Trump, and ignored Bernie Sanders (as he readily admits; Sanders would have beaten Trump is the democrats had selected him, studies have shown). Now he is against Hillary. Why? He discovered she was “for Wall Street”. Hillary went to San Francisco, all dressed in black leather:”insist, persist, resist!” Actually she is pushing her latest book.

Still No Message Of Any Substance, that’s why people who voted for Obama, in a last burst of hope, in 2012, voted for Trump in 2016, in the crucial states, the famed “Blue Wall”.

The Brexit vote rested on an arsenal of lies, imparted to the minds of British voters by the Plutocratic media. Basically, all is false, therein.

Also the vote itself was fraudulent, as it was supposed to be just a “consultation”, not legislating. No worries: Great Britain is not really a democracy, but a rule of one (mono-archy).   

So what’s next? We will see. London did its best to sabotage the EU for decades, and it’s just more of the same. A few months ago, Teresa May threaten to turn the UK into a “tax haven”. That’s of course disinformation: the UK is already a tax haven, and that’s why real estate has never been so expensive in London, the most expensive real estate in the world, by far. Plutocrats from the entire planet are flocking to London, knowing full well that the British government has no choice, but keeping on playing the Plutocratic card…

The fact that the USA’s richest universities are getting positively enormous subsidies is revealing that, once one has captured the minds of the idiots, even in democracy, especially in democracy, one can get away with anything. A Manchurian candidate made it to the presidency for 8 years, and now the Wall Street “opposition” keeps on capturing the hearts and minds of the fake left. Alleluia!

And what of Europe? Same problem, plus a deer-in-the-headlights syndrome. As long as progressives have not figured out in which direction progress lays, the likes of may will rule, complete with leopard shoes high heels, just to make sure she overlords all the uneducated out there… Her “Brexit” has no meaning, and she knows it, but the lords she serves, the world plutocrats have no meaning either, all they want is ever more prerogatives… And they don’t intent to jump off the gravy train, anymore than president Putin and PM Medvedev in Russia. Massive demonstrations there have exposed the latter as the face of state corruption in Russia (his enormous palaces, for example next to Sochi have long been notorious; a bat researcher was emprisoned for taking pictures of Medvedev’s palace there, and protesting the destruction of bat caves next to it; ultimaterly he had to flee Russia to the UK…)

One may wonder why this global plutocracy problem seems so much alike all around the planet. It is simple: the democracy we have is NOT the real thing. The ideal of democracy we have (as espoused by Russia) is NOT the real thing. Clinton-Bush-Obama, this triple head hydra is the same problem as Putin. Basically. It does not matter if it’s Russia, or California.

Real democracy should be about We The People ruling directly, as much as possible. Instead, what we have is a parody of democracy. Brexit is the poster child of this absurdity: although there was a referendum, it was all about lies. The referendum was conducted in a sea of lies, under fake assumptions, and false pretense. So now Britain is going to spend, and waste, Europe’s time for the next ten years of its convoluted, unending Brexiting… Before asking to go back in, supposing in ever leaves, which is not really the plan.

The real plan is to make the British National Health Service a new source of profit for the US health “care” industry. Oh, by the way, do you know how many people are enrolled in “Obamacare”? Eleven millions. Another nine millions are truly in Medicare. Meanwhile, the subsidies to the health care for profit industry, just as the subsidies for US plutocratic universities, have much augmented. Alleluia! We may as well have fun, watching plutocrats soar into orbit.

Just to make sure we get the picture, British PM May wants us to know she is completely mad. On day first of the Brexit negotiations she let it be known that if the European Union will not submit, she will let terrorists do their thing to Europe. May’s words insist that there is an implied threat, the prime minister’s letter being explicit. “In security terms, a failure to reach agreement [with the EU] would mean our cooperation in the fight against crime and terrorism would be weakened,” she wrote.

It does matter that PM May personally lacks credibility. That’s the whole point: plutocracy will make people do, and submit to, incredible things. Reason is in the way, so it should be disposed of.

Scourge of PC Plutocratically Driven

March 9, 2017

Political Correctness has ruled the West for decades. It was a crime against thought, and civilization alike. It profited those who wanted to turn us into insects. Tellingly, so-called “liberals” (in the US) and progressives (elsewhere) feel that PC makes them just, moral, and strong. They have a point: the heavy chains slaves carry around, make them stronger (in a most demeaning sense). Political Correctness was a plot to make us all stupid and nasty, because stupid nastiness shared with all, is how plutocracy rules.

Brexit is the most striking example of PC gone all the way: it was alleged that the very idea of European Union was anti-democratic, and that the union had to be destroyed, for democracy’s sake (in truth, it was quite the opposite: plutocracy had penetrated the Union, but that plutocratic attack was pretty much directed from the City of London, a plutocracy (technically) and its many supports, admirers and co-conspirators…). The pretend the Union was intrinsically anti-democratic was a huge fraud, conducted in the name of democracy, and, of course, to serve the same old masters. After faking opposition to it, while conducting an extremely ineffective campaign against it, the entire British plutocracy lined up behind Brexit (even though technically the referendum was just “consultative” when conducted. Parliament decided it had force of law the following year! (If We The People had known it had force of law, We The People would have voted for “Remain”: it was sheer constitutional fraud!)

English Harbored Plutocrats Have Molded Minds, Through Media and Universities, For Brexit, Hoping To Avoid Potential EU Socialism By Making Britain Into A Giant Tax Haven and Pluto Paradise, Just Off Shore…

Not to say that the EU itself has not become a gigantic Pluto fraud. But the EU itself is governed by the national governments (thus the British government, which can pretty much veto anything important it does not like the EU to do). That was one of the many frauds hidden from the gullible British public…

***

Here is an example in The Independent, UK:

Brexit is not the high point of democracy – it’s the greatest fraud ever perpetrated in British politics:
“An irate local farmer told me he voted to leave as a protest against EU bureaucracy that delayed payments of his subsidies. He thought Defra was an EU department. He didn’t realise it was The Department for Rural Affairs and that the EU had fined our governmental department for its incompetent administration of subsidies.

No matter, we got our country back, even if it means losing the subsidies and keeping the incompetence.

British farmers received £2.4bn last year in EU payments and the National Farrmers’ Union has already warned that many farms would fail without these handouts.

Importantly, EU membership already has built-in border controls under the “right to reside” test. This provides conditions to entry, such as having a job or being financially self-sufficient. There are no immediate, automatic entitlements to benefits, which require further conditions. Most other EU states impose these controls rigorously but the UK has been less assiduous in their implementation.

There was no mandate to leave the single market, sell off the NHS to US private health insurers or to turn the UK into a tax haven. Brexit has divided the nation. For Theresa May to unite the country she must heal wounds and take the public with her.

As Churchill said, “Never give in – never, never, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense”. Brexit is neither, so I shan’t be giving in anytime soon.”

***

The Trump-Clinton dust-up was another example of fraud: Hillary was basically campaigning, she claimed, against (some) consequences of her own husband policies (which were an extension of those of Nixon-Reagan; Nixon himself was the architect of McCarthyism, and, sure enough, the cultural inheritance of the Clintons, coming straight from Nixon, has been revived, as ludicrously, Clinton promoters have revived McCarthyism… to disguise the fact they have no new ideas since Nixon in 1950).

***

The Politically Correct was a Perfect Con instigated by Plutocratic Conspirators. PC ^3.

Being trumped by Trump is just deserts for the brainless pigeons who supported the mindset the plutocratically owned press, media, universities, courts, deep state, pseudo-intellectuals, politicians and legislators endowed them with.

The weapons we need are deeper, more powerful ideas. Don’t expect them from the bleating sheep, and its meek heroes.

Expect the stronger ideas which will forge a better future to come from fiercer debate, where truth is told to those who have avoided it religiously.

Relative to the main course which is needed, old firebrands such as Michel Foucault or Camille Paglia are not even appetizers for hungry, rebelling minds. We need to devour the feeble-minded, and relish in that salubrious activity, be it only on moral grounds.

To want to devour the feeble-minded, we first need to throw Political Correctness to the winds…

No, I am not copying Donald Trump: “Devouring the Feeble Minded” was the old slogan of my ancient Tyranosopher site.

Mental progress has always devoured the feeble-mindedness of the present, let alone the idiocies of the past. Political Correctness, also known as mental fascism, has always been in the way…

How Brexit Would Destroy World

May 12, 2016

Cameron goes on with his “Corruption Summit” in London. As if nobody knew already that London was a summit of corruption. The Nigerian president, sitting on Cameron’s left, calmly asked for the return of the billions of stolen Nigerian assets which Great Britain has stolen.

Is that Nigerian, to quote PM Cameron, “fantastically corrupt”? Does not he understand, with his tiny African mind, that Great Britain is very great, and rich, thanks to trillions and trillions and trillions of stolen property from savage countries not worthy of the Great British civilization? Watch “The Economist”, the great Great British economic magazine, always giving economy lessons to the whole world, while shipping all its profits to tax haven Luxembourg, to start with. This reminds me of when Britain was importing food from India, while India starved.

Another of Cameron’s effrontery is his “Brexit” referendum, or whether Great Britain should leave the European Union. “Brexit” is the exit of Britain from the EU. For the second time, Britain is voting in a referendum about whether it should be in the European Union. Why not to hold one whether Great Britain should be a member of the United Nations? As I will show, the question is not in jest. Brexit is a referendum about whether Great Britain should exist.

The Idiot Can Jump Out, To Be Torn Apart, The EU Will Fly Better Than Ever

The Idiot Can Jump Out, To Be Torn Apart, The EU Will Fly Better Than Ever

The first British referendum about whether Britain was in Europe, or in America, did not matter. The French government had consented to let Britain in, after blocking it for decades: that was the only thing which mattered. This time the stakes are completely different.

Specious liars will point out that the expression “European Community” (EC) was then used, instead of “European Union” (EU). This is a distinction without a difference; the concept of “ever closer union” was the fundamental concept of the European Community. The whole idea was to make a European war impossible in the future, something to which the Germans and the French felt, and feel, very strongly about. And it’s not just them: there is another one hundred million people living in the area in between or immediately around Franco-Germania.

Charlemagne’s empire covered France (including Belgium and the Netherlands), Germany, Italy, liberated Spain, and their satellites (Chechia, Austria, Switzerland, much of Poland, etc.). Some, ignorant of real history, may scoff, and say this was just Charlemagne. Not so: the Franks controlled most of Germany from the Sixth Century. The Franks played a strange game with the Pope, using the hated Lombards for leverage, until the Pope thoroughly surrendered (after Charles Martel nationalized the Church, and was NOT excommunicated for it). Then they conquered Italy (before Charlemagne). Finally it’s officially the Franks who extirpated slavery from liberated Britannia in 1066 CE (as the Anglo-Saxon realms in Britain were fundamentally unlawful invasions of Britannia).

The problem with Brexit is not what it will do to the European Union: the EU will do better without a obfuscating, obstructing, fiscally cheating, plutocratically plotting “Great” Britain playing Trojan Horse for global corruptocracy.

Brexit Is A Mental Illness Of Old Idiots Affected Gravely By Encroaching Senility

Brexit Is A Mental Illness Of Old Idiots Affected Gravely By Encroaching Senility

Once the British brats and obsequious servants of global corruptocrats are safely out of the European conference rooms, the grown-ups (Franco-Germania and its satellites) will be able to take the right decisions which are urgently needed.

(Right now, the French are letting Merkel run the European show: according to French socialist president Hollande, there are no disagreements with the conservative German chancellor. A 36 year old punk with red hair and horse teeth, the very cute Lea Salame’, called Hollande a liar about that, to his face, but that’s what happen when one runs a celebrity society. Cute Lea is a star, so she does not need a brain, and can say whatever looks good in the instant.)

A sobering Great Britain will stand outside, all conference rooms. It will take orders, from the EU, just as Switzerland does (through more than 600 bilateral treaties). A difference is that Switzerland is loved by France, Germany and Italy. Switzerland is not just 10% of Germany’s size: its French part is more French than it is attached to its own “German” part. I understand German, but not really Switzerdeutsch. The French spoken by the Swiss is standard French.

So Great Britain, should it Brexit, would be struck by at least ten years of lawsuits. One sixth of British law is pure European law. London is one of the largest French cities (4% of London is French).

Scotland and Wales will immediately vote to keep European law and exit Britain. The argument used by Brussels that Scotland as an independent nation would have to apply to the EU would become vacuous.

Scotland would probably not leave the EU, avoiding an awkward situation such as Albania getting into the EU, while Edinburgh and Glasgow are outside (Albania, a “francophone” country is pushing hard to get in the EU, in part thanks to its president, a perfect francophone; I approve this motion, and not just because it will make president Donald Trump laugh).

The problem with Brexit is mostly what it will do to world peace (no, I am not trying to be funny!)

Indeed, Scotland has made very clear it did not want the “British” nuclear fleet, the only deterrent Britain has. Emergency plans call on sheltering the nuclear fleet in… France (England has no appropriate deep ports).

Moreover, Britain would lose one third of its territory, once Scotland decides to stay inside the EU.

So what of the British permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC)?

It would go. And so would the United Nations’ fundamental organization. Once “Britain”, having disappeared, is out of the UNSC, a pandemonium may ensue.

Notice that Obama, at the last moment, told the French he was not attacking Assad, because he had got cold feet from the British refusal to strike (Assad’s family is a  major plutocratic organization, thus a British sacred cow). Obama himself said it. Cold feet. The French pilots were already in their seats.

Britain’s surrender to plutocracy is indeed a major threat to world peace. Cameron talks corruption, but it starts with the minds. Voting about whether Britain is in Europe, is a complete idiocy, the intoxicating fruit of minds corrupted by a corrupt system.

On The Insolence, & Power, of Plutocrats

February 18, 2016

The American NSA and French intelligence have agreed that the Paris attacks were made possible by unbreakable phone encryption. Their preparations would have been detected otherwise, as they involved communications between a number of countries and were prepared proximally from Belgium.

Apple Inc, whose boss is a dark clad plutocrat named Cook has refused, in spite of a judge’s order to allow the FBI to know the secrets inside Islamist State (inspired) terrorists in San Bernardino, California, who killed many.

The insolence, and impudence, of plutocrats knows no bounds.

Disunion Jack? Nice Flag, Too Bad The Craziness

Disunion Jack? Nice Flag, Too Bad The Craziness

Let me remind plutocrats that we have not yet formally switched to… plutocracy. They don’t command.

Apparently Apple believes it is Big Brother. But who elected them? Money? The State is supposed to represent We The People. Maybe the present state does not do this well, but then it can be modified. Putting plutocrats and tax avoiding ultra wealthy corporations in charge, is no solution.

By protecting the communications of mass murderers, Apple Inc. has clearly gone off the deep end.

In other news, a European conference among the principals is doing “all it can” (“Alles tun” said Frau Kanzler Merkel) to keep Great Britain in the EU. Well, Europe may be better without British obstruction and day-dreaming. Many of the English who fear Europe are typically losers who drank the imperial kool aid of an empire which is no more. The empire, now, however weak, is Europe, not the British empire.

Fear what you ask for. The problem of the millions of Brits who live outside of the United Kingdom and who would be left stranded by “Brexit” is easy to solve: they should be given expeditious ways to acquire the citizenship of their country of residence.

Thus a British citizen whose family lives in France, and who works in London should be offered French citizenship, and Great Britain forced to accept the same sort of treaties that France has with Switzerland.

The latest polls give 54% for Brexit, the British Exit. PM Cameron thunders that his intent is clear: to stay inside the European Union. Then why the vote in 127 days? It’s not like the Brits did not already vote. They did, at 67%. Everybody is angry against the European Commission in Brussels. Well, then, fix it.

But behaving as if Britain, or, more exactly, England, could set sail to somewhere southeast of New Zealand is beyond grotesque.

And how did we get there? The plutocrats who increasingly rule Britain, just as those who rule the USA, or the world (they are all the same), continually accuse the European Commission in Brussels of malfeasance… to hide their own. The EC is just the executive arm of the EU, and it is increasingly directed by the European Parliament, let alone the continual meetings of the European elected leaders with each other (as they are doing today with the British case). The EC has tended to bother cheese makers, rather than the plutocrats who pull the strings. This can all, and should be, fixed.

Countless plutocratic corporations, including Apple, have avoided taxation, and the EC has let it happen all too long. It just woke up to the fact IKEA forgot to pay a billion Euros in taxes. Well…

All what the plutocratic corporations tend to do is to bog down society in useless years of litigation against democracy. Apple Inc. wants to protect dead terrorists, and the psycho plots of plutocrats would only bring years of litigation between the EU and the UK, and between Brits and their own government, all this to end with an independent Scotland joining the EU, while England finds it does not enjoy the affection Switzerland got through 600 treaties with the EU… However, lunacy is the best way for the mighty to lead We The People by the nose.

A great part of English wealth, at this point, comes precisely from immigration of other Europeans to Britain, and, even more, from Franco-Germania closing its collective eyes to the general tax evasion and financial manipulations centered on London, while it profits of a nebulous galaxy of semi-dominions such as the isles of Man, and Jersey, or the British Virgin islands, or making financial conspiracies so dark and outrageous, that they are unlawful in New York. If Brexit happens, don’t expect that Franco-Germania will tolerate it anymore.

And this is why, precisely, and unfortunately, Brexit will not happen. I guess. But the law of unfortunate consequences all too often rules. Norway, or Switzerland, are not members of the European Union (although they are members of Schengen, the passport free area, which the UK does not belong to). However, they both contribute to the European Union budget. The fools who will vote for Britain to get out of the EU do not seem to realize this: Norway and Switzerland are still in Europe, and have to make do with the European superpower (Franco-Germania). Brexit will make Franco-Germania stronger, and thus Britain weaker (projections are that the UK will lose 3% of GDP, Germany, just .3%).

Well, whatever. The Europe empire, the ability of Europeans to command to the crooks of giant corporations, has to rise. English plutocracy is in the way: sweep it out there, and make compost with it.

NSA ought to be under WE THE PEOPLE’s Command (Imperium in Latin). That is not, is extremely deplorable. But it has to be fixed. Snowden should not perhaps get the Order of Merit, fleeing to Putin and what not, but some of what it did is extremely important, and commendable.

Apple has amply demonstrated, that, in spirit, it’s not just plutocratic (Crook is filthy rich), but an outlaw (literally). Apple outlawed profit processing, & that of other pluto corporations, depends upon total secrecy in how it makes money circulate thru filth. We The People can only rule if we can see what the criminals are plotting. Apple, and its ilk, have for business model, though, secrecy. To escape taxes, pay politicians serving them, violating the spirit of the law, and trampling human rights by feeding inequality to the point of inequity… Plus selling personal information, and manipulating public opinion to the point of madness (see the Iraq invasion, the inability of people to comprehend that the Clintons sold them to financiers, the sleight of hand of the 2008 crash, when Transfer of Assets to Rich People was effected, Brexit, etc.).

We The People should have every right in the world to extend the tendrils of surveillance all over. OUR surveillance, under OUR watch. It’s now technically possible, having access to Uranium ore, to make a nuclear bomb in a basement (with laser separation). Let alone make ricin in a tiny lab, etc… Actually since 9/11, the water networks, in countries such as France are watched exquisitely.

Immense powers require now immense surveillance, and we should start with spying all the phones of all the plutocratic corporations, to find out where they hid all the money, they stole from us, and who they pay, among our so-called leaders who are busy bossing us around, and spying on us illegally.

Plutocracy without secrecy is an apple without cyanide: not lethal, delicious to eat. The secret of Brexit: a plutocratic plot so twisted it is turning into its own demise.

We live in a wonderful world: everyday our power on the physical world augments. But that means the power of corporations, and of the richest, augments ever more. We have to watch them carefully to check they are not violating the spirit of the laws. And the same goes for individuals. Freedom and surveillance are two aspects of the same coin.

Surveillance is a direct consequence of the advancement of technology, and, thus, of liberty. Liberty means power, power means surveillance.

Global Corruption Mood

January 14, 2016

Corruption is not just a practice, but a mood, and it reaches heavens, when it’s made legal. Examples, especially global examples, set global moods.

An idiotic president spent his presidency visiting with plutocrats, begging them for money. A consequence of this highest example of triumphant corruption? The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is now delving further into corruption and doping in the world of international athletics.

Who is leading the charge against corruption? The usual suspect. The French Republic. In Munich, Germany, Thursday january 14 “the criminal investigations into the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) and its independent commissioner turned over information to the French prosecutor’s office” the Canadian reporting to WADA, McLaren, revealed.

Great Perspectives Elevate Moods. Base Examples, Lower Them. Mount Olympus, 2917 Meters, Greek Gods’ Heavens

Great Perspectives Elevate Moods. Base Examples, Lower Them. Mount Olympus, 2917 Meters, Greek Gods’ Heavens

It’s the second set of findings by the commission established by WADA. The first report released in November stunned the world of athletics by daring to reveal widespread, systematic doping in Russia, including the involvement of some employees of the Russian government. (Left unsaid was that, just looking at their results, countries such as the UK, USA, and Jamaica are just as drugged out as Russia is.)

Olympus gave its name to Olympia, where the Olympic games were held every four years, starting in 776 BCE. Olympia is actually in the Western Penepolese, a gigantic mountainous peninsula, far from Olympus in Northern Greece. So what’s the connection? Elevation of the human character, the will to come closer to the gods. Ancient athletes got no reward, but only symbolic ones, such as a crown of laurel.

Today’s Olympic athletes are only Olympic in name. Just like prostitutes they are led by greed to do what is too shameful, or even too illegal, to talk about. Including destroying their own lives through drug addiction, just to roll in dough.

In this hell, the elected politicians stand even lower. They have no shame, and have rendered legal all they do. [Although I make an exception for those who really fight for ideals, like politicians who campaign for socialized, or single payer medicine in the USA, such as Bernie Sanders, or against plutocrats, Sanders again. (And also the one whose name shall not be said.); or Catalan independentists, etc.]

IAAF suspended Russian athletes from international track and field competition. The question of whether they will be authorized to take part in the Rio Olympics is in the air.

The report brought a series of resignations of IAAF officials, including anti-doping director Gabriel Dolle and IAAF president Lamine Diack. Diack was jailed and is facing corruption and money laundering charges in France. Diack is accused of taking more than $1.55 million in bribes and taking money from athletes to cover up positive doping tests.

Diack’s sons were also paid by IAAF. One was convoked by French justice, but fled to Africa. France issued an Interpol warrant of arrest against him on Tuesday.

This is the sort of things, ladies and gentlemen, why global plutocracy hates France: France considers herself as the holder, beholder and defender of world justice.

What’s next? France issuing warrant of arrest against ALL international criminals? Will plutocrats be immune no more? Is France going to arrest all what makes London worthy, or, more exactly, expensive?

In the Swiss Canton of Ticino, Tessin, 24 global textile firms established themselves in the last two decades. Including North Face, Boss, Armani, Gucci, Versaci, countless Italian fashion houses, etc. The textile sector has become the main contributor to Ticino/Tessin taxes.

However their rate of imposition are kept secret. This sort of corruption is legal. However, it’s high time to put this sort of politicians and civil servants in jail. They often have, like El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord, the support of the local population. They are not any better.

Why not any better? Because by undermining the global tax base, they weaken global law enforcement, thus civilization, driving people crazy, and they turn to drugs to forget the whole mess. At some point, one will have to use force.

In Ticino, or Tessin, in the year 2012, the company formerly known as Pinault-Printemps-Redoute, headed by Pinault, one of the world’s top plutocrats, maybe the richest person in Europe, and who, showing up at the Elysee Palace could ask all present, including the so-called “President” to sit and stand-up, at will. Again and again. Of course, it won’t happen. It would break the Orwellian spell the Commons have been plunged into.

So Pinault the would-be Satanic changed the name of its tool: invisibility is one of Pluto’s assets. Changing names confuse critics. Instead of calling it as it was known, he called it “Kering”. Sounds seriously German, as serious as Volkswagen. Kering owns Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Volcom, Stella McCartney, Puma, etc.

An NGO got its hand on Kering’s accounting, and just revealed it. Kering has 600 employees in Switzerland. They make 70% of Kering’s profits (as least so Satan Pinault claims). In the rest of the world, Kering has 30,400 employees: they make only 30% of Kering’s profits. Making the computation, a Swiss employee makes 1.6 million Swiss Francs (roughly 1.6 million US dollars), and the average employee in the rest of the world, the thirty thousands, makes less than 14,000 dollars of profits. So a Swiss Kering worker makes more than a thousand times more profit than a Non-Swiss employee. They claim. And remember: we don’t know how small the taxes are on Pinault’s supposedly Swiss property. So instead of the French Pinault being taxed in France, or the rest of the world, he is “taxed” where there are no taxes. And the criminal ambles the world of the powerful, more powerful than them all, showing up at Davos, to plot with the other criminals. Hey, it was good to destroy completely the primary forest of Ivory Coast (thus spawning civil war there, when the economy tanked, as a result).

As the French magazine L’Express noted in 1986, “Bernard-Henri Lévy went all-out for his father. Did he intervene with presidential counselors to use the presidency’s African contacts to bump up the Ivory Coast’s debts to Bécob to top priority? BHL denies this intervention. However, he admits having contacted [then-PS Economy Minister] Pierre Bérégovoy to help his father.” Lévy also looked for help with the conservatives around Jacques Chirac, then mayor of Paris, and ultimately got an advantageous state loan after the personal intervention of President François Mitterrand.

Lévy’s firm also obtained an advantageous loan from François Pinault, a Gaullist politician, luxury firm executive, and today the 67th richest man in the world with a fortune of $11.5 billion.

Given Pinault’s bad reputation in business circles and his ties to far-right figures like Jean-Marie Le Chevallier and neo-fascist National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, L’Express notes, “Helping Bernard-Henri Lévy, a star of the intellectual left and leader of an already substantial network in publishing and media circles, was perhaps not such a stupid move. … The theory of a gesture by Pinault to win over BHL matches well, in any case, with subsequent developments: the turn of the [Pinault] group towards cultural industries and the birth of a ‘great friendship’ with Bernard.”

That was then. Now Pinault is much wealthier. Much powerful. By next year, he can ask Obama to lick his toes. In private.

Fiscal “optimization” has absolutely to stop. If nothing else, it’s weakening the West top military powers in their military capability. This is clear in Britain and France. (In the USA, the corruption affects military procurement: see the F35 scandalous catastrophe.)

But I am sure many officials in Ticino live very well, and, just as Nancy Pelosi only ever earned at most 160,000 dollars a year, her great leftism and democratism insures that Pelosi has now a personal fortune “between $42.4 million and $199.5 million in assets in 2013, which was enough for Bloomberg Business to deem her the richest member of House leadership from either party. By 2014, she and her husband, investment banker Paul Pelosi, were doing even better: She reported between $43.4 million and $202 million in assets”.

A report from Associated Press indicated that six years ago the IAAF knew of the widespread doping. Two internal IAAF papers before the London Olympics proposed not publishing doping sanctions for lesser-known Russians. Other officials claimed the IAAF was “one of the largest criminal organizations ever revealed”. Although some insisted that FIFA was still in the lead in that horse race.

In these matters, as in many others, the self-declared leading country leads. Obama just explained in his SOTU that the world wanted the USA to lead. Maybe it’s the world of the corrupted, corrupting global plutocrats which wants the USA to lead. In the USA many completely unethical practices, such as mass concussions for the youth, to serve “bread and circuses”, and make the youth unthinking, are perfectly legal.

Many so-called universities, “prestigious”, “excellent” and all that, get most of the profits from…concussion sports, with thoroughly drugged out young athletes (as shown by their dismally short lifespans). Is not that a new sort of slavery?

If the French prosecute, and jail them all, no doubt, after a while that the dreadful examples coming from the other side of the Atlantic will have to be put to the question.

Want to put a stop to the preceding? Campaign and vote for Senator Bernie Sanders, Clinton’s opponent. Although not the far left “populist” plutocratic media claims he is (him and Donald Trump!) Sanders, differently from the Obama, I helped so much eight years ago, is a known quantity in politics with an extremely long track record (yes Bernie likes guns and the F35… But he has to, as the Senior Senator from Vermont, a state heavily in guns and the F35). On the record both “populists” are very much against the tax advantages given to world’s richest people. Sanders is no doubt sincere. And Trump changes the mood, by condemning vigorously the practice (which Klingonic Clinton condones).

Clinton got $600,000 in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs is one year. G-S is an investment bank who got $60 billion from Obama in 2009… Goldman Sachs paid 5 billion dollars in fine for breaking the law. Not one G-S executives was prosecuted while kids who smoke pot go to jail. I have long condemned such facts. Now B. Sanders talk about them. They have to be carefully considered.

Clinton’s reply? Clinton accused Sanders of wanting to “start a contentious debate on healthcare, repel Obamacare”. All lies. Sanders wants MEDICARE FOR ALL.

Changing moods is the most fundamental step to take towards a necessary re-evolution. Yes, some of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful men, are the most corrupt. They are like the stem cells of a metastatic cancer of worldwide corruption. What happens in sports is just symptomatic. The stem cells of worldwide corruption have to be extirpated. Time to tax them, with more than taxes. Contempt should be high on the list, and the awareness than their behavior entails major capital crimes, not just ecological devastation.

Trumped: Hillaryously Cruzing To Hell

December 24, 2015

Trumped by the hilarious Hillary Clinton, the USA may be cruising towards Ted Cruz:

Looking at the possible future presidents of the USA, one is left with nervous ticks. The only one I like is Senator Sanders. Contrarily to his reputation of wild radical, he is anything but. Long time Senator of Vermont, Sanders supports the availability of guns so Americans can shoot each other, a fundamental right, and Sanders supports the F35, the most expensive, corrupt military project ever (it’s a flying Maginot Line, except the Maginot Line worked, and the F 35 does not).

Sanders: “I want to end the international embarrassment of the United States of America being the only major country on Earth that doesn’t guarantee healthcare to all people as a right, not a privilege.”

Clinton, second greatest recipient as a Senator behind Rick Santorum, of health care industry dollars, of course, is using weasel concept (“we have to be careful, how can we afford it?”) to sustain the health care plutocracy, one of her main supports. Fortunately, God, or Satan, whoever rules heavens, has a direct line to a much more inspired candidate:

Senator Ted Cruz Does Not Need The Message From The Messenger Muhammad, He Has God In His Head

Senator Ted Cruz Does Not Need The Message From The Messenger Muhammad, He Has God In His Head

Muhammad said he had a vision, in the desert, and a professional Christian monk, cousin from Muhammad’s very rich first wife, told him that he had encountered Archangel Gabriel. Muhammad was not going to contradict an expert. Now, in 2016, Americans will have the opportunity to elect the new Archangel Ted. It cannot be an accident that His name means “Cross”.

Now, craftily, Cruz propagandists say that Ted Cruz may never have said such a thing. Exactly. Instead he said it in bits and pieces: “Any president who doesn’t begin every day on his knees isn’t fit to be commander-in-chief of this country… I am blessed to receive a word from God every day in receiving the scriptures and reading the scriptures. And God speaks through the Bible.” Cruz presents himself as the Christ specialist: “will simply show up and vote our values, we’ll turn this country around. We can turn our country around, but only if the body of Christ rises up.”

Divine Justice: Health Care, Ted Cruz's Style

Divine Justice: Health Care, Ted Cruz’s Style

Cruz was booed off the stage for his frantic support for Israel. He accused those who disagreed of being “consumed with hate” concluding, “If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you.” I guess Cruz is not bringing back the Inquisition any time soon.

All the other candidates to the presidential election are caricatures from the Dark Side.

To recapitulate: in the 1990s, president Clinton, an ignorant, yet conniving schmoozer who used empathy as a weapon of mass domination, followed the orders he got from Robert Rubin and Larry Summers, and “deregulated” finance. Basically Clinton took all the work from President Roosevelt on finance, and flushed it down the toilet of history. Financiers were given carte blanche to do whatever they pleased.

On the other hand, Clinton “never had sex with that woman“. At least before DNA.

Now Hillary Clinton, who declared herself “broke” after the presidency (imagine: everything is paid for you, and then one gets a measly 450,000 dollar tip on top of that!), is the proud owner of at least 50 million dollars (just in case she has a problem remembering her “friends” when she becomes president). Hilarious Hillary repeated the far right talking points against single payer health insurance which both Sanders and Trump favor, attracting the furor of the health care plutocrats (apparently Obama got 350 million dollars from them in 2008).

To understand Clintonphobia, you have to understand that, in the existent fractional reserve banking system, private banks create money (through credit). Deregulation allowed banks and their financial accomplices to create as much money as they please, for their managers, stakeholders, and accomplices, and buy the world with it. Including politicians and administrators as found inside the USA and the EU (or Britain, or China, Russia…)

The maneuver was comparable to stealing candy from baby.

So now here we have the “dangerous” Trump perilously suggesting the USA needs single payer health insurance, or even, horror of horrors, “Socialized Health Care”, as in “Scotland”. Trump is really a horrible man, a mad man.

It goes without saying that the pseudo-left, the so-called “liberal with a conscience” are hysterical against Trump. Gee, with Obamacare, 30 million go without health insurance, and prices of drugs keep on creeping up (+ 4.5% last year). That’s all real progress, sing the likes of Krugman from the rooftops, while watching little students below pay $70,000 dollars to listen to the great masters of the dark art of economics…

While the “left” focuses its ire on Trump, it feels ready to accept anybody-but-Trump. This fostering of the mood of anybody-but-Trump fosters whom plutocracy much prefer. Not a traitor like Trump, but an obsequious servant.

Senator Ted Cruz says worse than Trump, calmly, and much more crazy, but nobody notices… Aside from the likes of Goldman Sachs. Ted has made already 4 million dollars. Having his wife work at Goldman Sachs cannot hurt.

Senator Ted Cruz makes Trump sound reasonable

Glenn Andrews: I was thinking exactly the same thing. It Trump were elected, other world leaders might detest him but they would at least understand what he was. With Cruz, they would be left scratching their heads.

So what is going on at this point? Cruz says that talking to god in one’s head is fine, and, by looking most reasonable, advocating this, he advertises the very mood which makes Literal Islam, and crazed out Christianism strong. Cruz makes jihadism honorable. Hillary Clinton, not to be undone, said that Trump was helping the Islamist State. Trump responded strongly to Clinton’s debate statements over the weekend, calling her a “liar.” “It’s just another Hillary lie. She’s a liar and everybody knows that.”

Fact checkers said there was no public evidence to support the comments Clinton made during the Democratic debate on Saturday. Hillary Clinton subsequently changed her music.

Trump says socialized medicine may be the answer.

For all these years, we have listened to Obama, who basically said nothing, as he droned on, smothered by the impotence of reasonability unchained. Now we have Cruz, a new Ayatollah Khamenei, who, likes Hitler, and unlike Ayatollah Khamenei, wants to be elected, while praising god. As Cruz does this show, common Americans are told it’s OK to be crazy with god. Trump’s message is strikingly opposed: he wants to bar those crazed with god.

Plutocracy has learned to reign with decoys. In France, Marine Le Pen calls to national thoughtfulness are derided as fascism. So one does not have to debate the fact that France needs a massive devaluation of the Euro, or that some of the points of David Cameron against the present European Union constitution may be reasonable. Properly managed, Trump becomes a decoy to free the path to the major insiders of plutocracy, Hillary and Cruz.

We are hilariously cruzing towards more the same, just worse. As time goes by, the mood that plutocracy is here to stay feels ever more reasonable. Now the future president is inhabited by god. What could go wrong?

Le Pen Trumps Plutocracy?

December 14, 2015

At first sight the rage of the likes of the magazine “The Economist” against Trump and Le Pen is strange: after all, The Economist is on the “right”, so are the preceding two. A clue: The Economist put the preceding two in the same bag as Bernie Sanders, under the mysterious label “Populist”… I guess a “populist” is someone for the People by contrast to those who are not (the likes of “The Economist”).

My own mom accused me to be “Front National” just because the French (“far right”, not that it is clear what that means) National Front has adopted certain issues I have long held dear. For example, many countries (and not just in the West) have seen the rise of new aristocracies. ⅔ of the top French companies by market value are held by inheritance, whereas it’s only around 20% in the UK or the USA; the reason emanates directly from the tax system; and the exact same tax forces are now at work in the USA, namely the exemption of the hyper rich from taxation, and inheritance tax, with a artfully crafted loopholes and exemptions. Notice in passing that this is a case where France is more “capitalist” than the USA (contrarily to legend).

Sugar Coated Plutocracy: French Aristocracy Bond Girl & Palme d’Or: Most Of French Power Is Held By Dynasties: Ancien Régime All Over Again

[“Léa Seydoux“, in the latest Bond movie, above, of her true name, Léa Hélène Seydoux-Fornier de Clausonne, is from an immensely rich and famous family, which has been that way, for many generations. So it is, all over French society: Sons of… and Daughters of… are those who succeed and get into the .1% of everything (singing, acting, administrating, politics, medicine, engineering, etc.). Consider the just published book “Fils de.. Filles de...”]

I guess, by that token, I am pro-Trump as Trump has embraced single payer, or even socialized health care system. In truth I am pro-truth and about issues.

Much of these outrages emanate from a political system which has embraced hero-worship, instead of issue-worship.

Hero-worship, celebritism spurns thinking. Thus a world where 97% of the convicted for serious crimes in the USA do not come in front of a jury, and are judged by non-judges… While Americans are persuaded they live in a country of justice. Or a world where a human right lawyer in China joined Marine Le Pen in being accused of “ethnic hatred” (the difference being that Le Pen is number two in French preference for president whereas the Chinese lawyer has been incarcerated for 18 months).

OK, let’s quote some of the (honorable, supposedly) USA “Republican” pundits. A raging conservative, Guy Benson, bemoans that:

“Republican voters — driven, it would seem, by Trump backers — became astonishingly supportive of (a) maintaining the Iran nuclear deal, (b) government-run and -funded healthcare, and (c) race-based affirmative action when the pollster informed respondents that those positions were held by Donald Trump, as opposed to Barack Obama.  These aren’t hypotheticals, by the way.  Follow those links, and you’ll discover that longtime Democrat Donald Trump has embraced all three liberal stances during his current presidential run. Not back when he was donating generously to Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid over the years (yes, yes, “because he’s a businessman!”), and not even more recently, when Trump was declaring his support for the wasteful “stimulus” package enacted by Obama, whom he declared had rescued the American economy; no, these are viewpoints articulated by the current iteration of Trump.  The punchline is that his supporters don’t care at all.  Trump’s Democrat-style campaign is driven by feelings and identity, not issues.  The HuffPo survey also revealed the same phenomenon at play on the other end of the spectrum, as hordes of Obama cultists reflexively tossed foundational liberal-left ideals overboard after they were told they were agreeing with Trump, versus Obama.  Can we abandon all reason and alleged principles in order to march in lockstep with an anointed political figure, or oppose a bete noir?  Yes we can. The point is that emotion-based hero worship can heavily erode afflicted parties’ previous adherence to values, ideology, and critical thinking.”

Hero-worship, what I call “Celebritism” is an increasing problem, and fully a part of the oligarchic phenomenon, itself a subset of the plutocratic mindset.

The plutocratic phenomenon does not suck out all the air from democracy, but from intelligence itself (the USA’s first billionaire, Carnegie, explained this, 130 years ago). Yet plutocrats should remember this: at some  point great vengeance is exercised (it happened even in the USA, witness president Eisenhower 93% upper margin tax rate). And history indeed shows that, at some point always, the pen trumps plutocracy
